Who is David Denman?

Born on 25 July, 1973, in Newport Beach, California, under the fire sign of Leo, David Denman is an American actor. While he made his movie debut in “The Replacements” alongside Keanu Reeves and Gene Hackman, he made a name for himself by playing roles in “Big Fish”, “The Gift”, “13 Hours” and, of course, “The Office”. Throughout his 20-year career, he has become known as one of the most versatile actors in the industry, able to assume any role and excel under any circumstances. David is an avid fan of indie movies, and a self-proclaimed Shakespeare aficionado, claiming to have seen every work of his on stage.

Early Life:  Never Staying In One Place

David was born into an American family in the city of Newport Beach. While most actors have to travel frequently because of shoots, public appearances and premieres, David has been living such a life ever since he made his first steps. Astonishingly, he attended as many as eight different middle schools in Southern California. The reason why the Denman family relocated so often is unknown, but it’s possible that it was due to work-related matters. When he was nine years-old, David made the biggest move of his life. Used to urban settings, he suddenly had to get used to living on a farm in Sequim, Washington. However, this rural life only lasted two years before he found himself in his home state of California yet again. This time, the Denmans settled permanently in Orange County.

Education: Fountain Valley High School, Juilliard and More

David was enrolled at Fountain Valley High School, interestingly intothe same class as future director Craig Brewer and actor Omar Metwally. After matriculating from high school at 19 years ofl age, David understood that acting is his true calling, so he went on to follow his dreams, and attended summer courses at the American Conservatory Theater, located in San Francisco, California. Immediately after graduation, he started taking classes at Orange Coast College, where he appeared in and directed over 20 productions in various genre, ranging from classic works by Shakespeare to more modern plays. Afterwards, David became a student in the Drama Division of the prestigious Juilliard School in New York City, where his classmates included future famous names such as Alan Tudyk and Sara Ramirez. In 1997, he received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.

1997-2002: ER, The X-Files and More

While he focused more on theatrical acting in college, David’s ultimate goal was to showcase his skills in both TV shows and movies. His first credit was the role of Jeremy Willis in “ER”, the hit show which depicts the life and times of medical professionals working in a busy emergency room. The same year he was in “Chicago Hope”, as Ethan Dolan, after which came two other minor roles, in “The Pretender” and the lesser-known TV movie – “The ‘60s”. Then came “The X-Files”, from which fans of the show remember him as Wallace Schiff. In 1999, we could also see him in “Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction” and “A Vow to Cherish”. The beginning of the 21st century saw him in roles in “Out Cold”, “The Replacements” – in which he played a deaf football player – “CSI: Miami” and “Crossing Jordan”. While he didn’t assume any leading roles, David proved himself as a versatile and malleable actor.

2003-2012: Angel, Night Stalker and The Office

The mid 2000s were an important period of David’s career, as he had even more opportunities to put his skills on display and take on more difficult roles. After “Crossing Jordan”, we saw him in “The Singing Detective”, a musical comedy starring Robert Downey Jr. as Dan Dark, as he hallucinates and has strange vision while in a hospital bed. Then he assumed the role of Skip in “Angel”, followed by “Big Fish”, “Second Time Around” and various other roles, the most notable of which were in “Strong Medicine”, “Grey’s Anatomy”, “The Nines”  and even a small role in “The Office: The Accountants”. In 2005, he had perhaps the biggest breakthrough his career, when he was cast as the iconic Roy Anderson in the hit TV show “The Office”, appearing in a total of 31 episodes through 2012. Around the same time, he had roles in “Drop Dead Diva” and “Traffic Light”, both hit TV shows.

Recent Years

In the current decade, David has been working incessantly, with almost the same tempo as he had in the mid-2000s. Fans could see him in “Person of Interest”, “Vegas”, “After Earth” and even in “Parenthood” as Ed Brooks. This impressive work ethic has made David one of the most famous cameo and supporting actors, with a massive resume of over 70 credits to his name, earning the respect of both fans and peers alike.

Personal Life: Who is Mercedes Mason, David Denman’s Wife?

David Denman is apparently happily married to Mercedes Mason, a Swedish-American actress who has been in a number of hit shows in recent years; her most notable credit is the part of Isabel Zambada in “The Finder”, a drama which aired on Fox. While she was born in Linkoping, Sweden, she relocated to the US with her family. She has been one of the most active Hollywood actresses, with a myriad of credits to her name. The couple tied the knot on 13 September 2001, previous to which David was married to Nikki Boyer, a singer and actress, from 27 May 2001 until 2010 – they have one child.
